Need a little help...
« on: October 02, 2017, 09:51:16 PM »
Hey there,

I'm new here, however not new to knots. I started in Scouts a long time ago. I've been trying to figure out how to do a 2 color star knot using 2 pieces of paracord. I'm not exactly sure the correct way to do this and any help you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi Knuckles, I can point you to two photo collages of the single strand star knot that have helped me in the past: http://www.andysocial.com/paracord/index.php?title=Star_Knot_(Dman) and http://www.andysocial.com/paracord/index.php?title=Star_Knot_(Matthias)
I found making a simple fixture of five nails in a block a help in fairing the knot.
